What’s New

  • Have you visited Foodie yet? Foodie is a brand new culinary site with recipes and discussion boards and exciting upcoming features such as restaurant guides and exclusive chef contributions. I had the chance to be enrolled as a featured author, and I published 3 exclusive recipes on the site. Head on over to find out what they are!
  • Edible Cities: I have an exciting new project in store for Food Nouveau! In a weekly column called “Edible Cities”, some of my favorite bloggers, authors and chefs will tell us about their favorite city and share a dish that left an everlasting memory. My goal is to allow everyone to discover new places and new dishes through the eyes of people they love. I’m happy to say many fabulous bloggers and authors have already accepted to be part of the project! I can’t wait to read their contributions and share them with you. Know a blogger, an author or a chef that could be interested too? Send me a line and I’ll give you all the details!
  • Catania awaits: I can’t believe it – I’m heading to Catania, Sicily next week! This trip has come as a complete surprise, I will write more about it very soon. My flight was booked just this week so I’ve been frantically gathering info about the city. Have any tips? Please leave a comment or send me your recommendations!
